Hi! I wanted to know which is the best program that gives the CPU temperature more accurately, because I have 2 different programs which tells me the same temperature but when I enter to the BIOS it tells me a temperature quite different (higher than the programs). Thanks a lot!

Whichever one has the features you like should be the one to run.

BIOS is a no load direct read of the temp sensor, it is normal to have a slightly higher reading than anything from the OS. The OS has some ability to alter the toatl package, and adjust as needed to match what the cpu is coded as.

If your talking more than 10* difference, there should be some concern, if not your in the normal (my experience) zone of readings.
